The Verdict

The Foodie’s Pick
Juice Works has a lot of complex flavors, and they’re intense. I found it more savory. Plus, the taste of dirty vegetables is not abhorrent to me, and as a foodie, I actually appreciate it.

The Veggie’s Pick
Bottom line: Truce is the easiest to drink. With some of the other kinds I feel like you have to force it, and the Truce juices went down much smoother.

The Juicer’s Pick
Call me loyal, but I’m sticking with BluePrint. The ease of availability (delivery or Whole Foods) makes it easier to quench my juice craving whenever I want.

The Newbie’s Pick
The taste of some of the others was too celery-heavy, but the BluePrint flavor profiles were simpler and more refreshing. I was surprised by how recharged I felt afterward.
